Dutch Euro 2012 squad face 'monkey chants' in PolandThe captain of the Dutch national team says his players were
subjected to racial abuse at a training session in the Polish city of
Krakow this week, just days before the Euro 2012 football tournament was due to begin in Poland and Ukraine.
Several hundred people
out of a crowd of 23,000 reportedly targeted black members of the squad
with "monkey chants" during an open session Wednesday at the Stadion
Miejski, the home of Wisla Krakow.
"It is a real disgrace
especially after getting back from Auschwitz (the Dutch squad had
visited the concentration camp on Wednesday) that you are confronted
with this," Netherlands skipper Mark Van Bommel told a press conference
"We will take it up with UEFA and if it happens at a match we will talk to the referee and ask him to take us off the field."
